OOo Math supports union and intersection over any arbitrary number of sets, clearly. Note that the operators(union intersection) are binary - giving a example;

 Code: A intersection B intersection C newline {A intersection B} intersection C newline  (same above) A union B intersection C newline A union B union C

If you would like to create something like a sum operator you should
first: create a personal symbol called "yoursymbol" in the symbol dialog
then: use this code:
 Code: oper %yoursymbol from {i=1} to n yourset_i

I'was succesfull using new big operators and sets when I was writing a work on probability theory.

other examples could be:
 Code: oper %yoursymbol from {i in indexesset} yourset_i

and you can use also a saving vertical space form:
 Code: oper %yoursymbol_{i in indexesset} yourset_i

Don't forget you can use as big operators any character in your computer, but you don't need to define a personal symbol for those charcters normally accessible via keyboard.
